Abstract

The models presented in this paper are motivated by a stop-over study of semipalmated sandpipers, Callidris pussila. Two sets of data were collected at the stop-over site: a capture-recapture-resighting data set and a vector of counts of unmarked birds. The two data sets are analysed simultaneously by combining a new model for the capture-recapture-resighting data set with a binomial likelihood for the counts. The aim of the analysis is to estimate the total number of birds that used the site and the average duration of stop-over. The combined analysis is shown to be highly efficient when just 1% of birds are recaptured, and is recommended for similar investigations.
